Gifted with Learning Differences
Twice Exceptional (2e) Group
Twice Exceptional children are those who are gifted but, for a variety of reasons, find it a challenge to fulfil their potential due to some sort of learning difference or difficulty.
We are a group of parents meeting informally every couple of months to share resources and experiences we have had with our twice exceptional (2e) children. From time to time we invite a speaker or organise workshops relevant to the needs of members.
If you have any questions or would like to find out when the 2e Group is next meeting, please email our 2e coordinator.
Next Meeting: Saturday 10 June 2017, 2pm
Please email us if you are interested in attending, for details about the venue.
